Senior Climate Planner

Department: Environmental Planning


Phone: 508-824-1367, ext. 221

Audrey joined the SRPEDD environmental team in March 2024. She is from Sarasota, Florida, a graduate of the University of Florida (Go Gators!) with a BS in Sustainability, and a graduate of the University of Texas-Austin (Hook ’em horns!) with MS Sustainable Design and MS Community & Regional Planning. As a transplant Floridian, her passion lives in coastal resilience, vulnerability and mitigation studies, environmental justice, and mapping of all kinds.

Her expertise includes working with ESRI’s ArcGIS, data analysis, community engagement, sustainable building practices, and regional/community policy. Audrey is a LEED Green Associate and an active member of the American Planning Association. She has worked at state-wide, rural/local, and educational institutions within Texas and Florida, with backgrounds in both public and non-profit sectors of grant management, energy auditing, LEED accreditations, comprehensive planning, redevelopment districts, and suitability analysis. She will continue to do work in Green Communities, hazard mitigation resiliency plans, and much more for SRPEDD.

While relocating to a much, much chillier Providence, Rhode Island for this position, she also enjoys rowing, hiking, collecting maps, and sewing.
